British And American Warships Observe Remembrance Day

Posted on November 12, 2018

For the first time, seven ships including RFA Cardigan Bay, HMS Dragon and USS Devastater, all sounded their bells as a sign of respect to the fallen on the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Further commemorations were held across Bahrain, including at the British Embassy, the UK Naval Support Facility and on board RFA Cardigan Bay. An additional “Bells for Peace” celebration was held at St Christopher’s Cathedral, as part of an international bell ringing programme to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War Due to time difference, personnel at the base held their minute silence at 2pm local time so that they would fall silent like the millions across the UK at 11am.
